Swedish IT and medical technology company Sectra has enhanced its product offering within digital radiology through the acquisition of Pronosco A/S, announced Feb. 15. The Copenhagen-based company develops and markets software for diagnosing and monitoring osteoporosis. As part of an agreement implemented in November, Sectra has been integrating Pronosco's software tools with Sectra's system for digital radiography. These tools allow doctors to diagnose and monitor the development of osteoporosis, based on estimates of bone mineral density and the structure of bone derived from a radiograph of the patient's hand. The application will be available as an optional tool on Sectra's workstations.

On Feb. 26, Sectra described the signing of a cooperation agreement with International Medical Multimedia (IMM), a software development company based in the U.K. IMM develops and markets AiMS, image management software that enables radiologists to create and customize image archives for clinical reference, teaching, and presentation purposes. The agreement will allow Sectra to integrate AiMS into its digital radiology workstation.
